About First Fruits Ministries
What We Believe
We are a first century Judeo-Christian Messianic congregation returning to the Jewish roots of the faith in the Messiah Yeshua through the Hebraic understanding of the scriptures. We follow the divinely inspired holy scriptures, commonly referred to as the Old and New Testaments, as God’s holy word for us to live by. We seek to understand the scriptures in the purest form possible, studying them from the Hebrew perspective and in the Hebrew and Greek languages in which they were written. LEARN MORE.
First Fruits Ministries is a non-denominational, Bible-believing community desiring to live with conviction and passion for the Word of God, loving God and all people through Messiah Yeshua with the help of His Holy Spirit. Our church is affiliated with Corner Fringe Ministries, and First Fruits Ministries Pastor Andrew J. Manuse is guided through the discipleship and counsel of Corner Fringe Ministries Pastor Daniel Joseph, whose church is located in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. Our church leadership is built upon the godly instruction outlined by Paul: men who are temperate, prudent, respectful, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine, gentle, uncontentious, free from the love of money, and holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. Our elders in either community are approachable and willing to answer any questions you may have. LEARN MORE.
In the context of our regular meeting times and practices, First Fruits Ministries is a Torah observant community as understood through the "whole counsel of God" and the New Covenant, meaning that we meet for each of the Holy Convocation Days the Lord has commanded, which can all be found in Leviticus 23. We do not meet or recognize man-made holidays that were set up long after Yeshua ascended into Heaven. Of most critical importance, God clearly defines the Day He wishes us to honor and remember, and that day is the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week. We continue to keep the Sabbath on the day and in the way God ordained it in Exodus 20:8-11. Each one of the Lord's holy feasts point us to Messiah. It is a delight to observe them. LEARN MORE.
